The Commonwealth of Arracrania is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 746 million Arrecije live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tavirtad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arrecije economy, worth 118 trillion iasetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 159,325 iasetas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 944,936 per year while the poor average 12,365, a ratio of 76.4 to 1.

Preservative-laden Arrecije cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arracrania's national animal is the Sailor-Mouthed Parakeet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Arracrania is ranked 12,352nd in the world and 130th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 94 on the Rand Index.
